***Both 5pm and 7pm talks have filled up. If you are waitlisted, we'll send you an email if we schedule another event with the Tesla Roadster!** Come check it out, it is an event you don’t want to miss. The main event for the evening will be a discussion on the Tesla Roadster (which should also be present at this event!) 5pm first talk group - Doug Bourns 6pm first talk group sandwiches & TechShop tours 6:30pm second talk group sandwiches & registration 7pm second talk group - Doug Bourns 8pm second talk group TechShop tours The Tesla Roadster Tesla Motors designs and sells high-performance, highly efficient electric sports cars. Their cars combine style, acceleration, and handling with advanced technologies that make them among the quickest and the most energy-efficient cars on the road. Tesla Roadster has far more drawing power than previous EVs, including the General Motors EV1. The Roadster has a 0-60 mph time of just 4.0 seconds, a top speed of 130 mph and a range of 250 miles per EPA driving standards. Using the U.S. government's calculations, the 100% electric carbon fiber-bodied vehicle will get the "equivalent" of 130 miles per gallon or about 1 cent per mile in electricity cost. The Tesla Roadster’s elegantly designed powertrain consists of just four main components. These aren’t "off-the-shelf" components, and each includes innovations, both small and large. In this talk you will hear about the design process and some of the innovations being employed in the design of this very exciting car. OUR SPEAKER: Doug Bourn is currently a senior electrical engineer at Tesla Motors Inc. where he shares responsibility for the design and testing of the Power Electronics Module (PEM) for the Tesla Roadster. Prior to Tesla Motors, Mr. Bourn spent 10 years as a senior EE at IDEO, a product design and development company in Palo Alto, CA where he worked on a wide variety of consumer products and medical electronic devices. Doug received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. In his ‘spare’ time he enjoys motorcycling, skydiving, flying, and teaching others how to fly. Doug holds commercial pilot, instrument, multi-engine, ground instructor, and single/multi-engine flight instructor ratings along with a ham radio Amateur Extra Class license, KF6WHL.
